Wednesday does not start well; getting the scores of last night’s Champions League Semifinal second leg between Arsenal & Manchester United. It’s put a dark & heavy cloud over my activities for the day.
Arsenal were beaten 1-3 at their own grounds as first half goals by Park Ji-Sun and Ronaldo effectively buried us. In the second half another Ronaldo goal sealed the deal and the only consolation was a penalty goal that Robin Van Persie converted. United defenceman Darren Fletcher was shown the red card for a tackle on Cesc Fabregas.
So that, as they say, is that. Arsenal’s season has all but ended, with nothing to show for it. We did have to struggle to get into the top 4 and therein Champions League playoff position for the next season. The Gunners will finish either 3rd or 4th. Here’s hoping that Wenger will see the light and finally start splurging and buy some top class big name players.
